Introduction to the Boundary Layer
Boundary layers are of vital importance for transport phenomena. They are thin areas within the fluid, with large property gradients, that appear in solid/fluid and fluid/fluid interfaces. Despite being a small area of the fluid flow, most of the transport processes of momentum, heat and mass take place there. Thus, they are decisive in the design of equipment that involves transport phenomena.
